We recently celebrated our littlest babies 1st Birthday. Holy Moly did that year just fly by. Don't get me wrong I LOVE throwing parties, my friends often tell me they cant wait for them because they're always the best or I give the best party favours. But I tell ya what! January birthdays are hard. After the mad Christmas rush and our own personal Christmas' getting ready for a 1st birthday was hard. I had so many plans for her big 1st birthday, I started planning it almost the day she was born. I typically go way OTT and let me tell you... none of them happened. But you know what? No-one cared that all my plans had fallen by the waste side. As they left people still said great party as usual Jess. You did an amazing job, the food was amazing. And look maybe they're all just blowing smoke (thanks guys I appreciate it ). But here are the things I learnt... or re-learned.
1- You can throw an amazing party on a budget. Look for the best deals and the best prices for what you want and no-one ever looks down when you go back to party basics.
2- DIY is your friend, don't be afraid to print those invites from the photo kiosk, balloon garlands are really easy if you have some time and patience.
3- I can actually cook well if i don't "wing it" with recipes. Also kids don't need super fancy food. They're OK with Jelly and chips ( no-one touched my fancy fruit salad i wonder why?)
4- the smiles on these faces are all that matters. I was disappointed that I once again forgot to take photos of my set up to show off. But none of that mattered cause everyone had a good time and at the end of the day that's all I really wanted in the first place.
